From the opening rising swell of hazy feedback to the closing cadence of shimmering, guitar noise, this second release from A Beautiful Machine is a hallucinogenic ride through reverb-drenched atmospheres, abrasive-yet-lush guitars and spaced-out, lethargic vocals.
Solar Winds.. takes the ABM sound of noisy, post-shoegaze dream rock far further than hinted at in the debut self titled release, embracing a wide range of moods and sounds, crafting dark & dreamy odes to folly, love, loss and spaceflight.

Ambient, yet heavy ...
Somewhere between Godflesh and Jesu, A Beautiful Machine manage to be wonderfully atmospheric, melodic, heavy, lightly harsh, and very listenable.
Deep and impressive. Listen to these in a dark room with headphones and you will not be the same afterwards.
